Library holds and Murphy’s Law
All my holds came in at the library at once.
And then it happened again.
Yes, some of these are repeats/renewals, as my stack increases.
Since taking this picture, I have finished Nimona, by Noelle Stephenson, which was terrific. Highly recommend. I need to write a book review.
I’m convinced Murphy’s Law is in play.
I felt almost sheepish adding to my armfuls of library books and checking the new books out on top of the ones I already had. But the librarian didn’t tease me, much.
The holidays are, of course, a great time to lounge around and read.
Except, I have a thing about taking library books with me when travel is involved (to say nothing of jamming them into my travel bag alongside presents and cozy sweaters.) I feel like that invites the disaster of a lost book, too far from its home.
So, adding to the pre-holiday errands: return my books to their home library.
After setting up a hold at the library near my parents’ place, for these very same books.
Which I did. And they’re starting to come in.
All at once.
Life is good.
